C last week

We are all fighting off colds, good days and then not so good!  But every time the day is crisp and not so grey, I get to photo this one.  My December shots of C so far.

Random Thursday

With over night storms, over tried girls and chilly evenings, we have been mainly indoors.  But as soon as their is glimmer of sunlight, the camera comes out and walking boots on.  My favourite charity shop find was this cup and saucer made by Spode for £3.00.

Friday Thoughts

For us the weekends cannot come around quick enough.  We cherish chilling out and lazy mornings, especially as the days get shorter and chilly.  My eldest today feeling under the weather.  Also since my last visit to Lewes where I first purchased a little urn, I've been avidly collecting a few more.  What are your collecting obsessions?

Still Life Study - Gourds

Today the light was magical.  We have had some very grey days and today was a welcome return to the beauty and magic that is sunlight.  I found this jug in a charity shop a few weeks back and picked up these gourds in order to photograph them but the light was so tricky on those grey days.  I am so pleased with the result, it was well worth the wait.  For daily musings, please find me on Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.

Welcoming Autumn

My girls have learnt the art of photo bombing.  Over the weekend we loved our autumn walks, visiting the ibrary, joining in on the big draw and seeing Nick Mulvey play on Monday night.

Golden Hour Randoms

Over the last few weeks, my eldest daughter has struggled with settling into year five at school.  It is the first time they have mixed up their classes and even though we know that this will happen in two years time when she goes to secondary school, the adjustment has been too much for her.  My days are filled with raw emotions, frustration and growing pains.  My heart goes out to her, I'm hoping that she will know our unconditional love, hope and the equipping of tools to get through this stage.  The weight of this, has kept me occupied on so many levels, hence the lack of posts and photos.  But we are dealing with this daily and it is getting easier.  Please bear with me!
Anyhow here are a selection of golden hour shots, as we have pockets of sun amidst the grey and rainy days.

Currently still adding to my flora still life series, my obsession with Dahlias keep inspiring me.  However I am undecided with which image I prefer, out of the four images I favour two of them.  Which one would you pick to print off?

Random Thursday at Home

This week I have been poorly with a hideous cough that has really disturbed my sleep.  So I have had the slowest week ever, but satisfying as I have accepted that I can only do what I can do.  Some weeks I lose myself in trying to do so much and spreading myself way too thin.  This week I can honestly say that some things just didn't get done!
